Product Description

Comic book artist Jhonen Vasquez's outr?© sci-fi spoof, which ran on Nicktoons at Night from March 2001 to December 2002, remains the object of a vociferous cult following. Pressure from the fans compelled Nickelodeon to resume production of "Invader Zim" twice before the show was cancelled permanently. The title character is a zealous, none-too-bright agent from the Irken Empire posing a human boy. Zim imagines he's gathering vital information for the imminent conquest of Earth; the Irken leaders actually sent him here to get rid of him. With the rather spotty assistance of Gir, his robot sidekick disguised as a dog, Zim alternately sneers at humanity and gets himself into trouble. The only person who recognizes Zim as an alien is his UFO-obsessed classmate, Dib.\n The two-disc set is loaded with extras that will delight fans of the show, including commentaries by Vasquez and several of the story and voice artists, a second "commentary" of pigs grunting, subtitles in Irken, and the original pilot for the series. The uninitiated may find "Invader Zim" suggests a cross between "Dexter's Laboratory" and "Jimmy Neutron" re-imagined by Tim Burton. The bizarre designs, over-the-top vocal performances, and bodily function jokes are not for the faint-hearted, but they're not supposed to be. (Unrated, suitable for ages 10 and older: cartoon violence, gross humor) "--Charles Solomon"

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't fear the Peepi! Fear Me! Fear ME! August 30, 2005
Format:DVD
Invader blood marches through my veins like giant, radioactive rubber pants! Met Zim, an arrogant and none-too-bright Irkin sent to Earth to destroy it. Well, sent by accident. The Tall Ones just wanted to get rid of Zim and shot him randomly into space.

While other Irkin Invaders are equipped with SIR's (Standard Information Retrieval Units), Zim is given an assistant put together from pieces pulled from the trash; a GIR. ("What does the `G' stand for?" GIR shrugs, "I don't know.") Ah, the stink of clean!

With GIR's help, Zim must conquer earth. He disguises himself as a human child and attends school. No one suspects him except Dib, an outcast at school with a fixation on alien invasions.

The humor is advanced for Nickelodeon, most likely the reason they finally pulled the show. Body functions and toilet humor abound, along with some great one-liners. Pure cartoon entertainment, especially for fans of Jhonen Vasquez's humor.

My one complaint would be that there are no English subtitles. For those of us who are a little hard of hearing, I like to have subtitles sometimes.

Here's a rundown of the episodes:

Disc One:

Episode One-The Nightmare Begins

On Irkin, Zim shows up late for Invader assignments and is sent away in a random direction with GIR, just to get rid of him. Zim lands on earth, and sets up his base for plotting to destroy the planet.

Episode Two-Bestest Friend

Zim discovers he won't fit in with earthlings unless he has a friend. So he tests several of the kids to find out who will be his bestest friend. The tests include absorbency, electrical conductivity, and one that involved a squirrel and a taxi, but wasn't shown. The winner is Keef!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best cartoon of all time February 21, 2004
Format:DVD
From the mind of Jhonen Vasquez, author of insane, twisted comics, the voice of Richard Horvitz (Billy, Dagget), and the conductor's wand of Kevin Manthei (Resident Evil), Zim, an evil green alien from the planet Irk, comes to earth in attempt to take it over and give its land to his masters so they can do something cool with it. Unfortunately for Zim, a kid named Dib is onto his plot and is willing to go to any lengths to stop him. Now Zim, his insane robot sidekick, GIR, Dib, and his sister, Gaz, are locked in mortal combat for the fate of the Earth.
This is a brilliantly set up cartoon and the bizarre humor is hiliarious. Zim has been cancelled and us fans have been dying for a DVD for years. Now it's here. ...Look up there! what a price. What on earth are you doing reading this? Support the Irken empire and buy this DVD!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Behold the Power of ZIM! April 18, 2004
Format:DVD
A little over two years ago, a little cartoon named Invader Zim premired on Nickelodeon. Then, just as the show had developed a large fanbase, Nick cancelled it. Think that's the end of the story?
Fear not, IZ Fantaics, your time as come! Zim is finally available on DVD! If you never have heard of Zim, here's a newbie's Cliff Notes: Invader Zim is about an alien named, you guessed it, Zim. With a megalomaniac personality that makes up for his short stature, Zim isn't exactly in the Top Ten of the Almight Tallest's (Zim's advisors) favorite invaders list. After nearly ruining Operation Impending Doom I, OID II is underway and Zim wants a slice of the pie. But the Tallests have other plans. In order to get rid of Zim (and having OID II go smoothly), they send him to an unknown planet called Earth (which they themselves have no idea who, or what, inhabits it) on a "special misson". Being complete blind to the Tallets' true nature of this "mission", Zim happily accepts and decends to Earth, in hopes of completing OID II and pleasing the Tallests.
Along with Zim, you get a colorful cast that includes GIR, an "advanced" robot that has garbage for brains (literally) and acts like a two year old on a sugar high. Dib, Zim's antagonist, is a kid who is an inpiring paranormal investigator and will stop at nothing to prove of Zim's exsistance and plans to take over Earth. Gaz, Dib's younger sister and sometimes partner, just wants to be left alone and go about her daily way of life and Miss Bitters, Dib's teacher at "SKOOL", who main priority is to crush children's dreams and be blunt of the "evils" of life in general.
Why take notice? For one, Zim's creator, Jhonen Vasquez, is the brillent, twisted genius behind the popular comics Johnny the Homacidel Manaic, SQUEE!

5.0 out of 5 stars but had to stop as I found myself getting sucked in. This show really...
